Center for Integrative Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery
What’s New at CICBDD?
Bringing dedicated medicinal-chemistry expertise to bear on therapeutic targets being investigated by UNC faculty.
The Center for Integrative Chemical Biology and Drug Discovery was created with the mission of bringing dedicated medicinal chemistry expertise to bear on biological targets of therapeutic relevance under investigation by UNC faculty. Synthetic chemists, assay development, and compound-profiling scientists work in the center and create dedicated, multidisciplinary project teams with other groups on campus in order to progress targets through the drug discovery and development process. The center provides leadership of the North Carolina Comprehensive Chemical Biology Center, a member of NCI’s Chemical Biology Consortium.
